Vehicle History

Remarks

When the Mkll Escort was launched, the RS name continued with the Cosworth-engined RS1800, produced in tiny numbers.  More widespread RallyeSport production was initiated with the RS2000 of 1976 which substituted the diva-ish Cosworth unit for a sturdier 2-litre inline four cylinder, SOHC, 'Pinto' engine, which was mounted longitudinally in the bay, and endowed the car with a 0-60 mph time of 8.5 seconds and a 108 mph top speed. The engineering prowess continued, with the gearbox bolted to the rear of the engine and power fed to the diff by a prop-shaft and then in turn to the rear wheels.  A single twin venturi 32/36 DGAV Weber carb was fitted with the option of a 'Group 1' dual Weber 40 DCNF or IDF. The front suspension used independent MacPherson struts with an anti-roll bar and the rear suspension used leaf springs with telescopic dampers. Front mounted discs (solid) and rear drums were used and four-spoke alloy wheels came as standard. 

Massive History file including MOT's dating back to early eighties.
